Radical Geometry @ Royal Academy of Arts / until 28th September 2014

kvaaglkl9wois95831drTIME AND PLACE:

Doors:
Sat-Thu 10:00-18:00
Fri 10:00-22:00

@ Royal Academy of Arts, The Sackler Wing, Burlington House, Piccadilly Site, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BD

www.royalacademy.org.uk

Tickets: £10 book online

From radical innovations in the use of colour and form to new materials like neon and interactive, kinetic sculpture, this exhibition reveals some of the most original art of the last 100 years.

The time: 1930s. The place: South America. The stage was set for a major innovation in art. Over the next 50 years, artists across five cities would pioneer a new visual language to express their deeply held beliefs about art and its power to change the world around them.

Radical Geometry brings together work from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros by some of the great innovators of South American modern art, from Torres-García in Uruguay to Lygia Clark in Brazil, from Maldonado in Argentina to Gego in Venezuela. Inspired by European artists such as Mondrian and Kandinsky, their bold experiments with space, movement and colour radically transformed the relationship between art and viewer.
